Solving Webcomic Issues We All Face.
This podcast we discuss:
Dawn: FB pages: unless you’re going to empty your pockets to get the people who liked your page to actually SEE your posts, is it worth it to have one anymore? Should we just start promoting on our own profile pages and leave it at that?
Drezz: Issues vs. Books – what are your thoughts on readers picking up multiple issues or a collection (mainly for long form) – is it worth the effort to divide your story in episodic format?
Chris: Live art vs. “Quick Sale” items: My caricature sketch cards I do at conventions are easily my best & most consistent sales item but, there’s good and bad. If I get a lot of requests, they take time to do. Time that takes away from my pushing the books, prints or other ‘quick sale” items. What kinds of things can I do to take advantage of the popularity of the cards but still make other sales? My wife suggested a book + caricature sketch card combo but at what price? Currently the cards go for $10 a piece and the books are $15 a piece. I also offer specials for multiple book purchases as well: 1/$15, 2/$25, 3/$30.
Robin: Logistical question: Doing my first out of state convention. What do I need to know to get there, get my equipment there, etc?
